1. You need a good tapedeck
2. You need a good audio cable to run from the tape deck
3. You need a good input into your computer. The microphone input is not the best. You either need a good soundcard (ESI Julia@) or some sort of Analog-digital-converter that works with a USB cable.
4. You need a program to record (encode) the music onto your comuter. There are many free ones that work well.
5. You need a program to "track out" the audio file (create the markers where the songs start.) These programs are free too, I think I used to use Goldwave.
5. You will want a program to compress the .wav files you created previously, FLAC is good (and free)

This all takes considerable time, I suggest you get a good input (soundcard) so that your music sounds as good as can be. Otherwise you won't be happy with the results. I learned how to do it all in a couple of hours Googling on the internet.

Good luck!
